“Shooting for Freedom” with Congressman Pete Olson

Recently two of GBI partners, Gene Baker and Jimy Dyer, had the privilege of shooting clays at Westside Sporting Grounds, with Texas’ own Congressman Pete Olson. They were honored to participate in the event “Shooting for Freedom”. Congressman Olson humorously commented at lunch, that only in Texas could you hold this type of event for such a great cause. When Congressman Olson began reminiscing of his old high school days, he and Gene seemed to remember the same noteworthy basketball game, the time when Nolan Ryan walked into the gym and distracted Congressman Olson long enough for his opponent to score two points. Jimy’s necktie (shown in photo) is a token to remember the day he and Gene gave Congressman Pete Olson a run for his money the clay shoot.

Houston Construction News Features GBI

By Abby BeMent, Houston Editor -- Houston Construction News

HOUSTON, TX-- Several years ago, the surveyors at GBI Partners, LP came across some interesting history while working on a local project.

“Ivan Diaz was clearing brush at present-day Sienna Plantation and noticed a grave monument from 1864 hidden deep within the plants,” said Lauren McClendon, director of communication. “We learned it was the second wife of Jonathan Dawson Waters, owner of the Arcola Plantation, which used to be Texas’ largest cotton and sugar plantation in the 1800s.”

Providing surveying services in the Texas area for more than 25 years, Eugene R. Baker, RPLS, is the founder and President of GBI.

James ‘Jimy’ Dyer became partner in 2007 as the head of engineering support services. Jon P. Bordovsky became partner in 2007, specializing in construction phase management and working closely with field crews.

GBI participates in the Texas Society of Professional Surveyors (TSPS) Softball League with a team cleverly names Sharp Shooters, as well as the TSPS fishing tournament, a big favorite among employees.

“We firmly believe that work can and should be enjoyable,” McClendon said. “Attending Houston Astros and Rockets games are other ways our surveyors play as hard as they work.”

We are excited about opening up our new office in the Almeda area. GBI has grown immensely over the past five years, due to Houston’s constant need for growth and development. We’ve seen a lot of growth within the company, too. Over the past three years, our employees have been blessed with eight newborns. It’s been a delight to see our employees share the joy of parenthood.”

GBI is a land surveying firm specializing in design surveying, platting and construction management.

GBI Delivers Timely Response in Slowing Economy

Houstonians maintain a positive outlook in today’s economic state as they learn that Fort Bend County had the highest annual percentage increase in employment in the United States last year among the nation's largest counties, according to figures released by the U.S. Department of Labor. However, the “Time is Money” mantra rings loud as contractors push through projects to respond to the growth demands.

Alvin San Miguel, construction manager of Sienna/Johnson Development, knows that GBI Surveying’s response time is essential to getting contractors moving.

“GBI really steps up to the plate,” says San Miguel, “I’ve used several surveyors for my projects. Over the past eight years GBI has proved to be the most responsive and provided the best service.”

Sienna Plantation is a mixed-use, master-planned golf-course community designed for 20,000 homes and 70,000 residents. Today, it ranks as one of the fastest growing communities in the Houston area. GBI Surveying continues to provide subdivision platting and construction staking for many of Sienna Plantations current projects.
